Less particulate matter in Stuttgart

In 2018, Stuttgart is to comply with the EU's annual limit value for particulate matter for the first time. According to urban climatologist Rainer Kapp, however, this is not only due to the favourable traffic development in Stuttgart. Due to the extraordinary weather conditions, the fine dust had accumulated much less this year than before. It is not certain whether this will happen again next year in normal weather conditions.
